Review Catholic University of America
Four years of the best memories of my life! The people I met are now lifelong friends. The education I received was superior beyond compare, and the religious backbone of the university continues to be my anchor in my life. Catholic University exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend the school.
Just as expensive as American or GW for no reason. Classes are small but professors are awful, generally felt like I learned nothing while I was in the classroom. Far too many required classes including: 4 semesters of theology with professors that usually don't get enough students registered for their classes. Prepare to get an internship or job, because this school will not give you the experience you need if you are a political science major. There are literally no parties on Fridays and frat "darties" are a major part of the cultural. Food situation is god awful, no vegan options whatsoever. Majority of campus resources aren't anything out of the ordinary save for the medical center and career center which go above and beyond. Dorms are average but rules regarding who you can have over are too antiquated for students of the 21st century. I think of CUA as a place I live in order to be able to intern on the Hill and in the DC Metro area and nothing more than that.
Catholic University is a great University. It has a well rounded student body and faculty and staff is very welcoming. There are groups and clubs available for almost anything you can think of and if they don't have one you like it is easy to create one. The classes are challenging and designed to promote success and the teachers are always available to help when needed. They have great athletic programs and the coaches are willing to work around school schedules for practices. The food is not the best, but they do have many options and a food court with many different restaurants to choose from.
